Boycott Palm Oil
Boycotting Products with Palm Oil
Palm oil is a common ingredient used in products all over the world. To create palm oil plantations, companies are destroying vast amounts of forest in Borneo and Sumatra. This directly effects the orangutan’s population due to the habitat loss. Without our help, orangutans will soon be extinct. Next time you are in the grocery store, keep a look out! Check the ingredients of your foods, cosmetics, etc. It is very likely you will see palm oil! Quite often, there are alternative “off brand” products next to the one you usually buy. If you take a second to look, It is possible to find your favorite items, but without palm oil in the ingredients. If your favorite product does not have a alternative brand, I urge you to write a letter to the company. Explain how you love their product, but do not support the palm oil industry destroying the orangutan’s home. Ask them to switch to an alternative oil. I have written these letters in the past, and have received positive feed back from many companies. CEO’s will listen, the power rests with the consumer! Make your voice heard, and make a difference.
